When my husband and I first arrived we were greeted by a friendly clerk who gave us a comprehensive packet of information and some useful tips on how to make the most of our stay.

Seriously, we could not have had a better stay. Island Inn was a terrific choice on Sanibel Island! We loved everything about it.
Loved the location. Very quiet area. Easy drive/bike ride to everything on the island. Staff was amazing. Check-in was a breeze....More
We booked for 7 nights this year. Each visit seems to be a longer stay which tells you we enjoy it. The hotel continues to improve, this year with a brand new building, but is able to keep just a touch of the "Old Floridian"...More
My husband and I have looked for years to find a place we want to return to EVERY winter. Priorities: BEACH, ELEGANCE, great management...location location location!
I had always wanted to go to Sanibel/Captiva area so we decided to give it a try.
We have stayed at Island Inn four of our six visits to the island. The first three were great and everything with the hotel was perfect. This time, when we arrived in the early evening, the outdoor temperature was in the seventies and the room's...More

No, there is really no central area on Sanibel. It’s more like there are “pockets” around the island. Huge estates in one area, many different small shopping centers that contain restaurants and then a couple of different public beach areas. It’s all flat with a designated bike trail that follows the road if you’d like. We went in July and did not feel crowded in any way. I understand that the spring is when it gets tremendously busy. For us, we were able to get anywhere in the island within just a few minutes by car from the hotel. It’s a great spot because the visible property next door is set way back from the beach so you get a feeling of a private beach. We are a beach family and this was our favorite. There’s not a ton of night life and really no traditional kids activities like mini-golf, etc., but we are lucky to have a teen who was just fine with that. Please let me know if you have any more questions because we had such a wonderful experience it’s fun to share.

All the rooms have a Gulf view, however none are"directly " on the water. This is mostly because there is a protected barrier of beach vegetation; grasses, sea oats, various other native plants. This is true of the entire area, so you won't find anything directly on the beach. I live on the east coast where there are a lot of places right on the the beach. The Island Inn is on the beach and the views are great from the Kimble Gulf view suite 2nd floor.
